All Saints' Memorial Church is an Episcopal Church in Navesink, New Jersey built around 1864. This church was inspired on a chapel located on the Isle of Wight in England. The memorial church was made up of small gothic revival stones. The church was designed by Sir Richard Upjohn, one of the most prestigious designer of gothic style in America. The small stone parish church has been surrounded by buildings and other establishments, such as a schoolhouse, parsonage, and a cemetery, and were all beautifully preserved. The complex was said to be copied from English manors during the Medieval period.

Few months after the brink of the Civil War, Reverend William N. Dunnell of Red Bank's Trinity Church started holding religious services in a schoolhouse in Riceville, the former name of Navesink. Later on, one of the prominent families in their locality provided a land to build a church. They hired an architect to build a cozy church for the group to have their place for service. At present, All Saints' Memorial Church is one of the National Historic Landmark of New Jersey and was declared in 1987.
